Coffee With Kenobi co-host Dan Z has a new holiday-themed blog posted over on the Official Site. In this entry, Dan takes a look at the similarities between a certain fallen Jedi and the classic Charles Dickens tale “A Christmas Carol.”
Here’s just a small taste to whet your appetite:
There are many wonderful stories that encapsulate the Christmas spirit, and emphasize the potential for human goodness and decency. These stories are time-honored traditions in the month of December, and I’m sure many of you have favorites that are sacrosanct for you and your families. Perhaps there has not been a more retold Christmas story than the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol, featuring the curmudgeonly Ebenezer Scrooge. Upon recently teaching this class to my freshmen students, I was struck by the similarities between Scrooge and the correspondingly conflicted Darth Vader. Perhaps they are not as dissimilar as one might originally think.
